Steve,

I really like the progress you have made with the Columbian. I think I'm liking them. Well done.

They are certainly coming along Steve.   Are you making any plans for Standard recognition on these?   If so, when will you start sharing stock in order to meet those five year requirements?

Michael, I have decided to share chicks and hatching eggs in 2022.   I have no idea about seeking recognition.  If enough people fancy them, maybe.   I'm not out to push it.  I bred the birds for my own personal enjoyment because it's my favorite color of chicken.  If it becomes a popular variety, I'd be happy.  If not a single person wants them and I'm the only person who keeps this variety, I'd still be happy.

Steve, I like your attitude.   Congrats on doing a fine job.    I feel the same way about my LF Brown Reds.

Great progress, Steve!  I've really enjoyed seeing your photos.  Beautiful birds!  My bantam project is coming along.  I'm small scale so progress is slow.  However, I am corresponding with a young man in Kentucky who shares the Columbian project interest.  He and I plan to exchange birds early spring.  We are hopeful these birds will enhance our breeding projects for 2022.

Johnny, your bird looks more like Light (like Steve's LF) than Columbian due to the lack of saddle striping.   Do you happen to know if your birds are based on brown (eb)  or wheaten (eWh)?     Lights are based on wheaten, and Columbians are based on brown.

Johnny, I am glad to hear you're still going with the bantams and have found somebody to work on them with you.  Keep us posted how it goes.
